Best Practices

CivicPlus Content Best Practices guide the Content Migration Process. They are based on industry standards and emphasize compliance.


Content will be formatted on pages using modules and widgets.


Pages display static content and are updated and added to when necessary.


Modules populate dynamic information that is linked throughout the site and related to the appropriate pages. Many modules have subscription options for your customers that allows them to subscribe to updates to the calendar, agendas, etc.

Information in Modules is generally brief and responsive to specific customer needs. This allows modules to be very specific: events for the calendar, alerts for the alert center, agendas in the agenda center and so on.

Modules are generally organized by category. Often administrative users are given access to specific categories that fit their role; permissions support this structure.
